    Client Services Assistant Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Boston Consulting Group in April 2017.

    Interview

    Applied in March 2017. Had a final round interview at one of their offices in April. They said they'd get back to me very quickly but I was never contacted again. Say what you will about BCG, but their HR team didn't even have the heart to take 10 seconds out of their day to give me a firm "no" even after 3 weeks, despite several follow up emails and calls on my part. I was very disappointed by this experience because it tarnished my previous highly positive perception of the company. It is a company's responsibility to give decision notifications to their candidates and I expected a higher degree of accountability from BCG.
